The Austin 100: Horse Jumper Of Love
Hometown: Boston, Massachusetts
Why We're Excited: Horse Jumper of Love plays dirges — deliberately (even funereally) paced slow jams in which each strangled note feels as if it's been squeezed out with great effort. Led by singer-guitarist Dimitri Giannopoulos, the band's songs sound hypnotically beautiful in an off-kilter way, with arrangements that magnify small narrative details into big, booming moments of catharsis.
